Activist Tehseen Poonwalla had taken to Twitter to criticise those, who were rejoining another box office failure of Kangana. He tweeted, “The trolling of #KanganaRanaut for her movie #Dhaakad is extremely unfair! We may agree or disagree with #KanganaRanaut but cannot take away from the fact she is one of the best actors in cinema today and a risk taker. More power to you #KanganaRanaut.”

Reacting to one of Poonawalla’s tweets, Richa wrote, “Aligning with power is easy and has obvious rewards like tax exemptions,awards,special status, security-even literally the Legislature promoting a film!So do you not know that the reverse also holds true Tehseen?Ppl are expressing dissent in whatever way they can. So chill.”

Poonawalla replied, “Just don’t want celebrations cause you movie flopped.”

Agreeing that celebrating a film’s failure was morally wrong, Richa said that this happened to everyone in the industry. “Yes. It’s morally wrong and also because thousands of people work on a film. But also, it happens. And to everyone,” She said.

Kangana’s film reportedly collected just Rs. 1.5 lakh even though the film was released on 2,200 screens across India. On Monday, several cinema halls took off the film after no one turned up to watch the film.
